The course focuses on the relationship between representation and figuration. Observation plays a large part in the course’s progress, and this includes the perception of the living model. It combines learning the fundamentals of water-based techniques with the development of a creative and singular pictorial practice and towards the elaboration of a more personal and sensitive approach. At the end of the course, the aim is to consider the model as the subject of representation, the object of the gaze. To see is to receive the visible, rather than to judge it in a desire to control it, to grasp the form in front of you and construct a singular figure from it.

Students must bring their own equipment (a list will be sent to them when they register).
Courses are taught in French.
